Since a long time leading organisations have been advocating the need of implementation of IT in a centralised manner on the distributed geological data monitoring centres. In the era of IT, it is highly important to access, share and analyse related data on a common platform for fast retrieval of information in centralised as well as in distributed mode. In this article a concept to integrate Geo-Scientific Instrumentation systems to Information Technology has been highlighted. The vision to create a Geo-Scientific Information System (GSIS) would be an approach where a centralised web-enabled database of the data acquired & transmitted by geographically distributed but networked observatories will be maintained and accessible over the WAN. GSIS couples together the virtually independent domains of instrumentation, web-based data acquisition, database, IT, networking, telecommunication & internet together to enable uses to access and retrieve information from sophisticated over the internet.
